During the process of envisioning and designing a film, the director, production designer, and art director (in collaboration with the cinematographer) are concerned with several major spatial and temporal elements. These design elements punctuate and underscore the movement of figures within the frame: setting, lighting; and costume, makeup and hairstyle. Choose a scene from movieclips.com and in a three to five page paper (excluding the APA title and reference page) analyze the mise-en-scène. Respond to the following prompts: • Identify the artists who were involved the production: the director, the production designer, and the art director. What are their roles in the overall design process? This might require additional research… • Explain how lighting is used in the scene. How does the lighting effect our reaction to, or our understanding of certain characters? What sort of mood does the lighting evoke?
